That sounds interesting. Even if the web solves this with forms, I
suppose some people would still like this for web-based wikis.

Evil, I must agree :-)
The main feature here - I think, IMHO - is being able to deliver the
user a text field already filled with the current content of the
article/section/paragraph, so that there's no need to copy-paste. I
wonder if ASK supports this? (What's exactly supported by ASK? Also,
what's the right manual to read on ASK? The gopher+ specification?)

A good way to do so would be developing a new editor for this specific
or forum post editing.
